About Us

Hi, this is David and Donna, we own and run Bubbles Dive Centre. Our story is one of change. We both started out life on the corporate ladder with careers with big companies back in the UK. But in 2010 we knew we wanted something different, so here we are continuing an adventure that is either very brave or just plain stupid – we hope it’s the former ? We gave up our careers to spend time doing things we love and care about and protecting our precious underwater world is our passion.

So here we are in Gozo running Bubbles Dive Centre. David is a PADI Course Director, the highest achievable level in diving.  David is the only full time Course Director in Gozo, he is also a Technical Diving Instructor Trainer, Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer, UK HSE First Aid Intructor Trainer and runs the training and diving activities for Bubbles. Donna’s passion is conservation and runs the business as well as all the environmental projects we support and get involved with.  We are the only dive centre in Gozo to be 100% project AWARE, this means we donate a proportion of our profit for every certification we make to www.ProjectAWARE.org the charity set up by PADI to protect our oceans.  In 2017 we became the official Turtle rescue team for Gozo working as volunteers with Nature Trust Malta.

Chris Dennis, who many of you will know, has been with us since the beginning and is part of our management team.  Chris joined us after University and decided that the 9 to 5 day was not for him.  He is now an integral part of the management team and supports  us in maintaining our very high standards of customer service and training.
